A couple of weeks ago I had a birthday and turned ????. My Mum and Dad gave me a subscription to the Fat Quarter Shop 2009 Mystery BOM and also purchased the backing fabric and finishing kit - now aren't I a lucky girl. The first photo is of backing fabric and finishing kit and the photo below that are blocks 1 - 5 (I am a bit behind as it started back in May). The fabrics are Glace by Moda and are just gorgeous. I have been busting to get started but as yet have not had a chance. I have decided not to count this in my no new projects diet as it was a gift and I just can't wait until after xmas to start it - can you blame me.
This is a table runner that I have made as a xmas gift for my SIL. I have used the free Gail Pan pattern from her blog and I have to say that I just loved stitching this design. It was very easy and quick and the little bird is oh so cute. I have used a red and cream spot from the Crazy 8 xmas range which I think looks fantastic. My SIL loves red and has lots of red accessories in her kitchen and dining room.
